A lot of people are becoming more interested with laptops that measure only around 13 inches diagonally because it is lightweight and compact but large enough to accommodate other computer programs and activities. The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is one of the newly released models that will provide users with state-of-the-art features in a very sleek and compact design. Below are some details on the notebook.

Initial Specifications

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is powered by a 3rd generation Intel Core i7-3517U processor and has either the Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro processors. Users can pick between 4GB and 8GB of DDR3 memory. The visuals are supported by the Intel HD Graphics 4000 card which is integrated. There is also a 1.0MP 720 HD built-in webcam on the device.

The Yoga 13 measures 13.1 inches (W) x 8.9 inches (H) x 0.67 inch (D) and weighs only 3.4 pounds. The laptop has a 13.3-inch HD+IPS capacitative multi-touch display with a widescreen resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels. As for connectivity, there is a USB 2.0 port, a USB 3.0 port, HDMI connection, combo jack and 2-in-1 card reader for SD and MMC card.

There is 128GB of SSD storage with 256GB to be released soon. The device has Bluetooth connectivity and 802.11 b/g/n wireless connection. The Yoga 13 comes with an AccuType keyboard and battery life lasts about 8 hours. The system also features the OneKey Recovery for added security.

More Features to Watch Out ForLenovo IdeaPad Yoga

There are also several applications that come with the system such as the Lenovo basic apps, McAfee AntiVirus Plus, Evernote, Amazon Kindle, Microsoft 2010 Optimized and Accuweather. The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 will be ideal for different activities and also looks very aesthetic. Its most exciting feature is its ability to fold and convert into a tablet. Continue folding the screen back until it shows the display on the other side, revealing the tablet mode.

The full-size keyboard is great for typing and will provide you enough space to work consistently. You might need more space than usual when folding the screen back to change the device into a Windows 8 tablet. 13 inches of screen, however, is still quite large compared to pure tablets.

Some of the other great things about the Yoga 13 are the powerful processor and huge memory. Doing basic tasks on the computer is manageable although gamers might find some limitations because of the integrated graphics card. The Yoga is priced at $1299 to $1,499 depending on your location.

Overall

In conclusion, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is quite expensive. Individuals looking for aesthetics will definite appreciate the new tablet mode. As for specifications, the processor, memory and storage capacity are decent but the graphics card could have been better. Sound and image quality are satisfactory. It offers a good deal for those who like to join the latest hybrid trend although the unit might not perform as well in the next few years against newer models bound to be released soon.
